Fabulous Friday

Hey It’s Jet Here.

As if Thank You Thursday wasn’t wonderful enough (see special awarded blogs here), my adopted Little Sister, Fluffy Popcorn (Poppy to her friends,) bestowed the Liebster Award on my blog this week.  Mom and I admit we have always been curious as to what Liebster meant.  Poppy, ever the curious K9, and her super creative Mommy, dug around and found out:

“Like most people who have received the Liebster Blog Award, Mom Googled to find out what “Liebster” means. 😀 This was what she found. “Liebster” means “beloved”, “dearest”, or “favorite” in German. The origin of the Liebster Blog award is somewhat unclear but there’s a general consensus that the award originated in Germany. The award recognizes bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.”

When you’re a bit newer to the blogging world, receiving this award carries such deep feelings of appreciation, acknowledgement and welcome.  The rules of the Liebster Blog Award only allows us to select 5 bloggers to pass this award on to.  With that in mind, we wish to share and pay-it-forward to:

  • Savannah’s Paw Tracks  – A new friend who has taken the blogosphere by storm.
  • 2 Brown Dawgs Blog  – We cannot tell how many followers they have, however, they saved my sister, JJ’s life!
  • For the Love of My Dogs  – Miss Deanna saves K9s from the same place Golden Rescue South Florida sprung me from with 4 days to spare.  We admire her big heart and how she walks the talk to help K9s.  We hope we can meet her and the crew for a pack walk someday soon!!!
  • Kol’s Notes –  Mom cannot tell how many subscribers Kol has; poor Mom, she tries so hard to be tech savvy!  We love Kol’s writing style and find ourselves giggling every time we visit. Plus, Mom LOVES to read anything having to do with food, cooking, etc… (she is The Kitchen Counselor after all!)
  • The World According to Lexi  – Mom cannot tell how many subscribers they have.  We love Nitro’s story, his weekly park pictures, the farm pictures and what a special life Miss Christina provides for her 4 legged family members.

Hey:

Another great, thanks so much, day.

Linda and the Brown Dawgs Saved JJ’s Life

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Serious stuff today.  Starting with the ending, JJ should be fine, we’ll know for sure by 9:30 a.m. **Update** – JJ and Mom just returned home.  She had endometriosis and beginning pyometra.  She did well in surgery, needs to be calm (hmpf) and should get back to her usual self soon.  Thanks to those who already wrote in asking how JJ was doing.

As many readers know, Mom and I still rank as Newbies in the PetBlog world.  We began my blog in October 2011, a few weeks after we lost Koko, Mom’s first ever K9.  You helped us welcome JJ, our new golden girl in December.  You even helped name her!

You may even recall that even though Animal Services told Golden Rescue South Florida JJ was that thing called spayed and GRSF told Mom the same, we had quite the surprise in February and again last Sunday.

When Linda, Storm, Thunder, Freighter and Nestle (of 2 Brown Dawgs fame) read our Mischief Monday post, Linda sent a comment back that something was wrong, to look up this big word called pyometra, and recommended that we call Dr. Shaffer.   Since Mom read their comment around midnight, she called first thing Tuesday.

Judy, who runs the front desk, left Mom feeling more comfortable, but said she would pass the question on to Dr. Shaffer and let Mom know.  Judy called Mom at work on Wednesday and said Dr. Shaffer tended to agree with Linda and the brown dawgs.   Since JJ had NO symptoms, Mom made the appointment for first thing yesterday.

Just in case, Mom restricted food and water after midnight in case JJ needed unexpected surgery.  Mom got the call at work again.  Judy said they would spay JJ and check for the scary stuff during surgery.  At day’s end, Judy called to say JJ did great in surgery, however, Dr. Shaffer hadn’t mentioned any further details.  JJ’s having a sleepover at Dr. Shaffer’s tonight to make sure everything is ok.  We already miss our cuddle bunny in bed!

Since Mom’s never had an unaltered K9, we would have never known (or for sure not as rapidly) about pyometra without Linda and the brown dawgs.

Thank you Linda, Storm, Thunder, Freighter and Nestle for saving our girl’s life and educating us.  Thanks in the larger sense to our new blogging friends, we never expected such support, connection and caring.

Another great, things will be ok with JJ, day.

Thanks to Life With Dogs, Confessions of the Plume and Two Little Cavaliers for hosting the Saturday Blog Hop.
